How could a dead person talk to you? Their brain is dead and dried up.
As someone in the science field, I don't believe anything unless there is proof. Well almost. I do go to a Presbyterian Church and there really isn't any proof to that whole story.
So I've watched John Edward (not Edwards) for a few years now. I started watching as a challenge to figure out how he does this. I read about how microphones are planted and how "plants" are planted in the audience. I read about Cold Readings and Hot Readings and how people can be led down a path that only helps the reader to get more "hits". I read about how the show is edited to remove massive numbers of misses and show only the hits.
And if these things are true, it explains how he is able to get specific references, like names, places, descriptions of house interiors, relationships, suicides, fatal diseases and the like. Because otherwise, this would be magic.
Then I actually attended a show in New York in Jan 2008. I was called upon and John surprised me by telling me the beginnings of my name and a brother's name. He referenced a second brother's profession. He reference a fourth brother's non-conformist lifestyle. He told me my uncle was Mark or Mike (it was Mark). He told me he died of lung cancer (I found this was true later on). He told me about a father figure who collected antique cars. (The next door neighbor took care of us after our father died and he collected antique Corvettes). There were other obscure references that all made sense except one reference to "George" And I can tell you now that they only knew my name when I arrived. Nothing else. No address, etc. We waited in a crowded room with music playing and I talked with my friends about imaginary people that we made up just in case someone was listening. When John was reading me, I offered up no information, in fact, I drew a blank on most things under the studio lights. He gave me somewhat specific stuff and even more specific to other people. There were many more hits than misses for the whole audience.
I have no explanation for it all, but I know that this info couldn't have been researched or overheard. I know that the info was not a cold read or even hot read. I know I am not a plant.
I can't explain it. It is almost statistically impossible that these items could have been guessed and had meaning to me. So I am now open to some things that can't be proved, even on days other than Sunday.
